    [–] Probably one of the nicest fountain pens I've ever made. DCxMiLK 3 points ago in pens

    Thanks. Which one you looking at? Btw promo code Reddit gets you 10% off ;)

    [–] Probably one of the nicest fountain pens I've ever made. DCxMiLK 4 points ago in fountainpens

    That's my biggest complaint with them is the weight. I make a kit fountain pen out of aluminum now and its extremely light. It's my favorite to write with.

    I have. My next purchase is a metal lathe to make my own designs. My wood lathe has to much slop in the tailstock to do any precision drilling. But I also have plans for some aluminium or titanium pens.

    [–] Texas woman killed after non-impaired driver taking breathalyzer test hits her DCxMiLK 18 points ago in nottheonion

    I have no experience with this devise or ever heard of it before reading this story, but from what I've read from people who have used it, this devise is unbelievably dangerous. You have to blow in it every 5-15 minutes. Even in the interstate. Having to pull to the shoulder on the interstate is dangerous.

    If you don't blow in the device it shuts the car down. Doing 70 mph when you car shuts down is dangerous. If your car shuts down you lose your power steering and your abs brakes. There is astory higher up of a guy flipping his truck because the device shut his truck down.

    A few have said if it shuts/locks your vehicle down and you have to call a company and pay to have it unlocked. What happens if your at a red light and it shuts your vehicle down. You have no money to pay them so now your stuck in the middle of the road because they have locked the ignition.

    Seems like a very unsafe and shitty system.

    [–] Charles Manson Dead After Spending 46 Years Behind Bars DCxMiLK 1 points ago in news

    he was sentenced to the death penalty in 1971, but his life was spared when California abolished capital punishment just one year later. Charles went on to spend 46 years behind bars.

    How much money was wasted on this man because of this decision? 46 years of being a drain on society.

    [–] EA’s dev response now has enough downvotes to play as Darth Vader DCxMiLK 271 points ago * (lasted edited 10 days ago) in StarWarsBattlefront

    What's funny is, as of right now, it has nearly 100k more downvotes then the previous number 1.

    Edit: Make that 300k!

    [–] I made my first pen! DCxMiLK 3 points ago in turning

    Very nice pen and kudos on nor using a lathe.

    If you want a decent cheap lathe to start with that is good for pen making but not much more then get the mini lathe from harbor freight. its $65 after you use the 20% off coupon.

    [–] A purpleheart bowl I made this evening... DCxMiLK 2 points ago in turning

    I usually use a propane torch while it's spinning on the lathe so it distributes the heat evenly. Gives it a deep vibrant purple color.

    [–] Made a fountain pen out of brass and stone. DCxMiLK 1 points ago in fountainpens

    With the cap it's pretty heavy. Without it isn't bad at all. I also have it in aluminum but the aluminum doesn't have a clip.

    I haven't weighed it yet but a pack of pilot g20 pens is probably lighter.

    [–] Made a fountain pen out of brass and stone. DCxMiLK 7 points ago in fountainpens

    This is true. My next purchase is a metal lathe to make my own fountain pen design. I have several design ideas already. The only thing I'll be buying is the nib and feed section.

    [–] Made a fountain pen or of brass and stone. DCxMiLK 2 points ago in somethingimade

    No problem. The nib and feed section came with the brass components for the pen. I bought them from [pennstate.](https://www.pennstateind.com/store/raw-pen-kits.html] I'm thinking about changing the nib out for a #6 jowo.

    I wasn't expecting that.

    I used carbide tools for this and it isn't too bad. Its actually not as hard as ebony or WebbWood. WebbWood destroys drill bits and carbide tools.

    [–] Made an EDC fountain pen. DCxMiLK 2 points ago in EDC

    Thanks. I got the kit from pennstate they have it in aluminum and stainless steal as well.

    [–] Made an EDC fountain pen. DCxMiLK 2 points ago in EDC

    Most of the fountain pens I make aren't really good for EDC. They are more of a desk piece. I wanted something sleek and rugged but nice. This is the first one. Its made out of brass and stone.
